The Partition of Africa – Dreamcast!

image

First thing’s first – I highly doubt The Partition of Africa will be made into a movie any time soon, if ever, so don’t think I’m delusional! But it’s fun to think about which actors you’d like to play which characters, isn’t it? I love to do that with books I enjoy reading, so I thought I’d give it a try with my own this time, and it did not disappoint.

Hattie Greene

While she may be a little too old to pass for nineteen or twenty, Emma Roberts has a sweet face and demeanor. There’s also something wholesome and pure about her which I think would be necessary for anyone portraying Hattie.

Claire James

If I had a time machine at my disposal, I would say without a doubt that Amy Adams would play Claire in this fantasy of mine, but she’s just a little too old. A more than adequate pick is Molly Quinn.

Cameron Wolcott

Colin Hanks fits the vision of Cameron I had perfectly, minus the glasses. The fact that his dad is Tom Hanks (my all-time favorite actor) may have helped his case, too.

Samson Campbell

This one’s tough! While Samson’s physical character was based heavily on Gerard Butler, I can also see Robert Downey Jr. doing a great job playing the caddish professor.

Sidney Campbell

I can’t think of anyone better to play Sidney than Cameron Diaz!

Piper McClure

I like the idea of Jennifer Lawrence for Piper. She’s a very talented actress who could pull off just about any role!

Trevor Pennington

Michael Cera

I like Michael Cera for Trevor. I loved his work in Juno, and I think he’s great at being awkward – and let’s face it, Trevor is good for awkward.

Tobias Reue

Stanley Tucci is far from meek, mild, or cowardly, but he’s a skilled actor who has played far stranger parts. I think he’d be a great Toby!

Molly Marshall is fresh out of grad school, armed with a shiny new degree in journalism and ready to take over the world. There’s just one little problem: no one seems to care.

Six months have passed since graduation and no matter how hard she tries, she can’t find a paying job in the field she’s spent years preparing to dominate. She’s saddled with a massive amount of student loan debt, plagued by family drama, and stuck in a dead-end job she despises. As if that weren’t enough, her relationship with Gavin, her dreamy genius fiancé, is more fizzle than sizzle these days. One can hardly blame Molly for questioning everything she’s been told about the real world.

Just when her prospects seem completely hopeless, the details that could prove to be the makings of a local scandal fall into her lap and Molly is forced to make a choice. What will it be: her ambition, or her heart?
